I've had this sterling silver bill clip in a display case for the longest time.  I got it out and shot up some jpegs for all to see.  These were produced by Tiffany & Company in New York, circa 1940.  I assume that they were used as promotional items / gifts, etc. by Maguire.  Two or three people have tried to purchase it from me over the years but I liked it so much I decided to hold on to it.  This is the only one I have ever seen in the original Tiffany box.  I am curious as to what value you RKI's would put on it?  Any guesses?

Thanks. You cant see it on mobile version and that's all I use now. I can switch to full on phone and see it.

I hate to respond without contributing but I like that money clip.

If I recall, this was talked about at last years NRA convention here in beautiful Indianapolis. Someone, don't remember who, said they knew of three of these clips, including this one.

I tried to buy one years ago but it didn't have the box. Seem to remember the price was $500-$600.

Someone else got it before me. Probably early 2000's time frame

Based on bmarvin's comment, with the box, essentially unused condition, $2K+ would be my guess.
